Take a peek in your kitchen junk drawer. Mixed in with the old rubber bands and dried-out ballpoint pens, you'll likely find outmoded devices, like that 1999 PalmPilot, or useless ink cartridges for a printer that broke during the Bush administration. But simply tossing everything feels wasteful and the landfills are plenty full already.
